Lesson 53 A News Report 一则新闻报道

Good morning everyone, I’m covering this story from the county courthouse. Our coverage of this event began two days ago when the police arrested Tom Smith for using counterfeit to buy an engagement ring. Tom Smith is famous for winning the covetous gold horse trophy last year before suffering a serious head injury in a fall. What makes this case unusual is that Tom claims he was buying the ring for his girlfriend, who is actually a cow. That’s correct, folks, I didn’t say cowhand, I said now. Apparently, he has had a sic-month courtship with a cow whom he believes is human.

大家早上好!我正在法院报道这里发生的故事。我们对这起事件的新闻报道开始于两天前,当时警方因汤姆史密斯涉嫌用假币购买订婚戒指逮捕了他。去年汤姆因先是获贪心的金马奖而后又在一次坠马中头部严重受伤而名声大噪。使这个案件异乎寻常的是汤姆声称他当时正为他女朋友---事实上是一头奶牛---买戒指。各位,这是真的,我说的不是牛仔,是奶牛。看得出,汤姆向这头他认为是人的奶牛求爱已经六个月了。

Tom appeared in court today wearing a cowboy costume. He cowered when he saw all of the TV cameras. The judge asked Tom countless questions about his relationship with his girlfriend, the cow. “Does she speak to you, Tom?” the judge asked.

汤姆今天身着牛仔服出庭。看到了周围的电视摄像机,他有些畏缩不前。法官向他提出了无数关于他和他女朋友(那头奶牛)的问题。“她和你说话吗,汤姆?”法官问道。

“No,” relied Tom. “She’s rather coy. That’s what I like about her. I’m also fond of the way she courteously listens to all of my problems. I think we make a good couple. I consider her my counterpart in life.”

“不,”汤姆回答说,“她很腼腆。这是是我喜欢她的地方。我还喜欢她彬彬有礼的聆听我发牢骚的样子。我想我们是一对佳偶。我已把她当成了我生命中的另一半。”

“Are you intending to marry her?” the judge asked with a serious face.

“你会和她结婚吗?”法官一脸严肃地问。

“Absolutely,” Tom replied. “I’ve already hired a courier to deliver the wedding invitations.”

“绝对会。”汤姆回答道,“我已经雇了信使去分发结婚请柬。”

“Okay, that’s enough,” said the judge, shaking his head from side to side. “I’m going to require that you take medicine to counteract the effects of your head injury. I’m also going to have a psychologist counsel you.”

“好,就到这吧。”法官说着摇了摇头。“我要要求你服药来消除你头部受伤的影响,而且还请心理学家为你提供咨询。”

“Thank you, judge,” said Tom with a sigh of relief. “But I think my girlfriend will also need counseling.”

“谢谢你,法官,”汤姆如释重负地舒了口气,“但我想我女朋友也需要咨询服务。”
